“BEAR CROSSING - STAY ALERT” The bright yellow sign shouts its warning to me from the side of Interstate 91. I am in the middle of Vermont. There are few people here. Most of the time I-91 has walls of trees on either side, occasionally broken by amazing mountain views or scenic views of small towns.
And so we are warned of bears and... moose!
“MOOSE CROSSING - NEXT 5 MILES”
I have seen the photos of damage caused by moose. You have a 2,000 pound animal on thin, spindley legs. Knock out the legs and the main bulk of the body comes crashing down on you! New Hampshire has regular warnings about the number of people who have died due to moose collisions up in the northern part of the state.
Bears, though, are new. Not sure what I would do if I saw one. 😬
